Girls’ Football Week is a national campaign – this year run in partnership with Disney - aimed at raising the profile of female football and supporting The FA’s aim of doubling the number of women and girls playing the game by 2020.
It will encourage girls of all experience and ability to take part in football and use the sport as a fun and sociable way to stay active, as well as an opportunity to find a new squad of friends.
Over 60,000 girls took part in over 1,400 sessions delivered in schools, universities, colleges, clubs, community groups and other organisations across the country in 2017.
Organisations can register their on-going activities as part of the week, or maybe even start something brand new to kick-start girls’ football.
The week is a great opportunity to showcase female football at every level and inspire new players and volunteers.
Many of the activities delivered during the week are based on The FA’s online guides, which provide advice on ensuring all activities are fun and safe for everyone involved, maximizing enjoyment and minimising risk.
This year Girls’ Football Week will run between 23-29 April.
